The Lyon Firm Files Class Action Yuma Medical Data Breach Lawsuit

UPDATE: The Lyon Firm has filed a class action data breach complaint on behalf of plaintiffs who allege Yuma Medical failed to properly protect their personal information, resulting in a data theft incident that may impact them for the foreseeable future. 

Yuma Regional Medical Center (YRMC) in Arizona has announced some details of a ransomware attack in April 2022 in which hackers allegedly stole the protected health information of approximately 700,000 current and former patients.

Yuma Regional Medical Center says the attack was detected on April 25, 2022, impacting internal IT systems between April 21 and April 25. A subset of files was exfiltrated from its systems.

Notification letters are being sent out to affected individuals.
